Tyga arrested on a felony domestic violence charge

Tyga has been arrested on a felony domestic violence charge following allegations of abuse by his ex-girlfriend, Camaryn Swanson.
The Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood division booked the “Rack City” rapper — real name Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson — Tuesday morning, according to the department’s media relations division, which tweeted the news. He was later released after posting $50,000 in bail.
The 31-year-old rapper turned himself in Tuesday after refusing to speak with police Monday at his home.
A source close to Tyga claimed to TMZ that Swanson showed up at his house at 3 a.m. Monday “shouting” on his doorstep and seemingly intoxicated, at which point he let her in and the situation escalated. However, the 22-year-old model alleges that the rapper sent a car for her while the couple was seemingly in the process of breaking up.
Swanson filed a police report Monday after leaving the rapper’s house, where the alleged incident took place.
Swanson posted receipts of her text conversation with the “Taste” artist that purportedly shows he in fact sent a car for her and added a direct rebuttal to TMZ in her Instagram Story: “I didn’t show up ‘screaming’ or uninvited. When I tried to leave he physically assaulted [me] and refused to let me leave for hours.”
“I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself,” Swanson wrote alongside images of injuries allegedly inflicted by Tyga.
Swanson and Tyga first appeared on each other’s Instagrams in spring, and by July, Swanson had been seen out twice with a ring on her left hand.
The rapper’s last song to chart on the Billboard 200 was 2019’s “Go Loco,” which cracked the top 50. He’s primarily known for dating Kylie Jenner on and off for two years after they met when he played her sweet 16 party in 2011. The two broke up in 2017.

Reps for Tyga did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
